WASO’s brain booster
This year young people have greater access to classical music and its brain-stimulating effects with cheaper tickets to West Australian Symphony Orchestra performances.
Under a partnership between MSWA and WASO, anyone under 30 can attend 2019 performances for $25 per ticket.
MSWA, which provides support and services to people living with all neurological conditions, has been using the therapeutic benefits of classical music on the brain for some time, incorporating music into its rehabilitation programs for stroke, brain injury, MS and many other neurological conditions.
“This is a wonderful opportunity to bring music into the lives of our community, particularly as we recognise the benefits that music has on motor and cognitive skills and overall brain health,” MSWA CEO Marcus Stafford says.
The West Australian Symphony Orchestra has partnered with MSWA to offer cheaper tickets for young people under 30.
